To write a negative review about a business or not to, that is the question!

This is a subject I have long wanted to write about but I had no solid opinion up until now.

With the popularity of online review websites such as, I usually read the reviews before going to a business.

It is said that we hold the world with our thoughts, the way we experience the world is how we collectively project our thoughts into it.
